My mom made these Dutch green beans every Thanksgiving and Christmas for as long as I remember.  I never ate it, because I don’t like green beans.  But…then one day I tried it, and it’s very yummy!


:: 3 strips bacon,  cooked and crumpled
:: 1 small onion, diced
:: 1 can sliced water chestnuts
:: 2 cans cut green beans
:: 1/4 tsp. salt
:: 1 tbsp. brown sugar
:: 2 tsp. cornstarch
:: 1/4 tsp. dry mustard
:: 1 tbsp. vinegar


Brown onion and water chestnuts in hot bacon fat.  Drain beans; save 1/2 c. liquid.  Mix liquid with remaining ingredients and add to onions in skillet.  Cook, stirring until mixture bubbles.  Add beans; heat thoroughly.  Serve topped with crumbled bacon.
